Printsystem

Here you can find the current print server.

If needed you can download a driver for your printer from the KPH FTP Server. If there is no driver available for your device, you can use a generic Postscript driver.

If you find your printer with your OS, you can go ahead and install it that way.

If this is not possible please use the Howto for Windows 10, macOS 10.13.x or Linux below.

Get the URL of the printer:

  1. Open http://print.kph.uni-mainz.de:631/printers/ in your browser.
  2. Click on the "Queue Name" of your printer.
  3. Now you are on the page of the printer. You have to copy the URL shown in your broser. This should look like this: “http://print.kph.uni-mainz.de:631/printers/clx6220fx-1-115”.
  4. Continue with the OS specific howto.
